Hollin Class

July 19th 2017

This week we had a fantastic time making seasonal salads as part of our Design and Technology topic. 


First, we learnt about which foods are ready to be eaten in Summer. Then, we designed a salad that included seasonal foods as its main ingredients. Once we had finished our designs, we then chopped, sliced and grated the ingredients ourselves to create the salad.

Finally, we ate our delicious creations!

This week we became poets! We wrote Kennings and a Haiku about a partner in our class. Each poem has its own distinct features, which we identified and then wrote our own. In the picture below, Miss Chambers is listening to children performing finished poems to the class.

We had an excellent Science lesson this week investigating Plants. We observed real plants, identifying the key parts and learning about their important functions.

This group is feeling the plant's stem, leaves and its roots in soil.

In Science this week, we investigated the strengths of different magnets.

We made predictions about what we thought might happen, carried out tests in groups and then evaluated our results.

It was amazing to see the magnetic force act on an object from a distance!

As part of our topic learning about the Stone Age, Hollin class have been learning about prehistoric beasts. We discovered many interesting animals from the Stone Age that are now extinct. We then made them into a fantastic Top Trumps game.

We have been using laptops to search for information on metamorphic, sedimentary and igneous rocks. We have been learning how to save and bookmark our favorite web pages. 


We are making some wonderful sounds with our violins now. We have been practising every week, learning the names of the strings and how to play some tricky songs.
